申命記 16 : 21 你 為 耶 和 華 ─ 你 的 神 築 壇 , 不 可 在 壇 旁 栽 甚 麼 樹 木 作 為 木 偶 。. 22 也 不 可 為 自 己 設 立 柱 像 ; 這 是 耶 和 華 ─ 你 神 所 恨 惡 的 。
路加 9 : 23 耶 穌 又 對 眾 人 說 : 若 有 人 要 跟 從 我 , 就 當 捨 己 , 天 天 背 起 他 的 十 字 架 來 跟 從 我 。

Sharing: 人在地上,一切都是神.
神不需用人為祂建壇,上若神賜我們建堂,神  便是我們的down payment ,also our provider。不要為 建築物而作,要為福音而作,不要為人的眼目暢息而作,要求眼目單獨在神美意. 要踏出 our comfort zone。甚至捨棄自已為重要的意念,背起十字架不容易,但跟著跟神背,主定將我們連十架都一斉背在祂背上。這是福份

Deuteronomy 7:18-19
But do not be afraid of them; remember well what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt. You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, with which the LORD your God brought you out. The LORD your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear.
申 命 記 7:18-19
你 不 要 懼 怕 他 們 , 要 牢 牢 記 念 耶 和 華 ─ 你   神 向 法 老 和 埃 及 全 地 所 行 的 事 ,就 是 你 親 眼 所 看 見 的 大 試 驗 、 神 蹟 、 奇 事 , 和 大 能 的 手 , 並 伸 出 來 的 膀 臂 , 都 是 耶 和 華 ─ 你   神 領 你 出 來 所 用 的 。 耶 和 華 ─ 你   神 必 照 樣 待 你 所 懼 怕 的 一 切 人 民 。

Sharing:  "Do not be afraid" is a promise that God gave to His people, which His people needed to receive by faith. Yet, God reminded His people that if they could remember well what He had done with the great trials, the signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, their faith would be strengthened. This is the same to us that we should remember well what God had done in our life so that we can firmly trust in God while facing the things we fear.

Luke 7 
41 Then Jesus told him this story: “A man loaned money to two people—500 pieces of silver to one and 50 pieces to the other. 
42 But neither of them could repay him, so he kindly forgave them both, canceling their debts. Who do you suppose loved him more after that?”

43 Simon answered, “I suppose the one for whom he canceled the larger debt.”  “That’s right,” Jesus said. 
Sharing:  Look around, have you noticed those brothers and sisters who love God deeply,  have you found out that they always self proclaimed how much God had forgiven their big debt.  For those who love God lukewarm, do you think they had less debt or they just did not see their big debt.    I can tell you that I can see my debts are accumulating higher and higher debt for what I owe the Lord my God, but to my surprise I realize that I love Him more and more.  Thank you for forgiving all my sins, my dear savior, Jesus Christ.  You are the only reason for my confidence to walk your path.   Thank you, Lord.         
Deuteronomy 7
9 Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands. 
10 But he does not hesitate to punish and destroy those who reject him. 
11 Therefore, you must obey all these commands, decrees, and regulations I am giving you today.
Deuteronomy 8
1 “Be careful to obey all the commands I am giving you today. Then you will live and multiply, and you will enter and occupy the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors. 

2 Remember how the Lord your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands

Having been retired does not make me immune from worrying about the IBM layoffs. Recent conversations among our brothers and sisters cause me to sink into some sort of hard reality. I pray for my brethren, and all the more, for our small church. The Word from God “Fear Not!” has resonated in my mind, but the mind and the heart always have a gap which can only be filled by our recognition of God’s character and His promises. Take heart and focus on Jesus, the sovereign God has control in everything

詩 篇 65 : 2 聽 禱 告 的 主 啊 , 凡 有 血 氣 的 都 要 來 就 你 。 3 罪 孽 勝 了 我 ; 至 於 我 們 的 過 犯 , 你 都 要 赦 免 。 4 你 所 揀 選 、 使 他 親 近 你 、 住 在 你 院 中 的 , 這 人 便 為 有 福 ! 我 們 必 因 你 居 所 、 你 聖 殿 的 美 福 知 足 了 。 8 住 在 地 極 的 人 因 你 的 神 蹟 懼 怕 ; 你 使 日 出 日 落 之 地 都 歡 呼 。 11 你 以 恩 典 為 年 歲 的 冠 冕 ; 你 的 路 徑 都 滴 下 脂 油 ,

When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!”
Sharing: recognize that we are sinners is the first turning point of our relationship with God. It is also the same point when we sinned and falling from his grace. A realization of our sinful nature and the holiness of Lord Jesus Christ,who still willing to abid in us, is what we rely on when we failed.

Psalm 62: 1-2
I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.
詩 篇 62:1-2
我 的 心 默 默 無 聲 , 專 等 候   神 ; 我 的 救 恩 是 從 他 而 來 。 惟 獨 他 是 我 的 磐 石 , 我 的 拯 救 ; 他 是 我 的 高 臺 , 我 必 不 很 動 搖 。

Sharing:  To wait quietly before God means not to rely on our own strength or man's help while waiting before God. The psalmist told us that God is our salvation, rock and fortress, we would not be shaken in any circumstances. In Romans 8:32 says "He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? " Let us learn to find rest in God while in the midst of difficulty, busyness or decision-making. Let's completely trust in God when we serve, work or simply live.

路 加 福 音 3 (Luke 3)
21 眾 百 姓 都 受 了 洗 , 耶 穌 也 受 了 洗 。 正 禱 告 的 時 候 , 天 就 開 了 ,
22 聖 靈 降 臨 在 他 身 上 , 形 狀 彷 彿 鴿 子 ; 又 有 聲 音 從 天 上 來 , 說 : 你 是 我 的 愛 子 , 我 喜 悅 你 。
21 When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened 22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
Most of us familiar with the manifestation of the Trinity through these verses, however, I am not sure if you notice that there is a communication channel was opened first – that is “praying”. Jesus gave us an example that the praying channel is a “hot line” that needs to be established between our God and us first in order to learn His will and receive blessings.

Luke 2:

36 Anna, a prophet, was also there in the Temple. She was the daughter of Phanuel from the tribe of Asher, and she was very old. Her husband died when they had been married only seven years.
37 Then she lived as a widow to the age of eighty-four. She never left the Temple but stayed there day and night, worshiping God with fasting and prayer.
38 She came along just as Simeon was talking with Mary and Joseph, and she began praising God. She talked about the child to everyone who had been waiting expectantly for God to rescue Jerusalem.

Sharing:  Anna in this passage links me to remembering my mother, also named Anna and let me think about my daughter Joanna (with Anna in her name).  I am so happy to know that Anna was a testimony of Christ's birth and she talked to everyone about the child who had been waiting expectantly for God to rescue Jerusalem.  May we be part of God's Kingdom to testify that Christ had been here on earth with us waiting to rescue more and more people around us.  I continue to praise you Lord, my God.

Let us fear our God, put our hope in HIM and follow HIS guidance because HE is the GOD of goodness.

義人得脫離患難,有惡人來代替他。The righteous man is rescued from trouble, and it comes on the wicked instead. (箴言11:8)

我不明白這節聖經. 以我一生所見到的有限經歴, 大都是, “惡人得脫離患難,有義人來代替他,” 剛剛與這節聖經相反. 但我相信上帝的話. 當我如此相信時, 我發現原來我是正在愛神, 因為愛是凡事相信凡事盼望, 凡事忍耐”( 林前13:7). 

作者Norman Geisler說得非常好, “基督徒沒有必要宣稱我們今天的世界是一個所有可能中最好的世界, 乃是最好的途徑引往那可能最好的世界 (Christian does not have to claim that our present world is the best of all possible worlds, but it is the best way to the best possible world).”

民 數 記 16 (Numbers 16)
26 他 吩 咐 會 眾 說 : 你 們 離 開 這 惡 人 的 帳 棚 罷 , 他 們 的 物 件 , 甚 麼 都 不 可 摸 , 恐 怕 你 們 陷 在 他 們 的 罪 中 , 與 他 們 一 同 消 滅
And he spoke to the congregation, saying, “Depart now from the tents of these wicked men! Touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins.”
This is a sober warning to us that sins can be contagious. May we be reminded that “sanctification” requires us to “leave” our sinful desires and “enter” the perfection of God.

Number 14:6-9
But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes; and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. If the Lorddelights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.”
Number 14:24
24 But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.  
God said that Caleb has a different spirit in him. What kind of spirit does God saying here.
It is the spirit of "The LORD is with us." and "Do not fear them"
Joshua and Caleb trusted in God that He would bring them into this promise land. 
They knew that God did all those miracles and lead them out of Egypt for a reason.
God would not back down and let them be kill by the people in the Canaan.
God would lead them all the way.
All they have to do is fully committed to God and have no fear.
God would only delight in us if we fully trust in him and focus our eyes to Him.
So have no fear for the Lord is with us

 15 On the day the Tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered it. But from evening until morning the cloud over the Tabernacle looked like a pillar of fire. 
 22 Whether the cloud stayed above the Tabernacle for two days, a month, or a year, the people of Israel stayed in camp and did not move on. But as soon as it lifted, they broke camp and moved on. 
 23 So they camped or traveled at the LORD’s command, and they did whatever the LORD told them through Moses.
Mark 13
31 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.
32 “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.

14 Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High. 
15 Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”
22 Repent, all of you who forget me, or I will tear you apart, and no one will help you.

Mark 11:11-14

Mk 11:11  耶穌進了耶路撒冷,入了聖殿,周圍看了各樣物件。天色已晚,就和十二個門徒出城,往伯大尼去了。

Mk 11:12  第二天,他們從伯大尼出來,耶穌餓了。

Mk 11:13  遠遠地看見一棵無花果樹,樹上有葉子,就往那裡去,或者在樹上可以找著甚麼。到了樹下,竟找不著甚麼,不過有葉子,因為不是收無花果的時候。

Mk 11:14  耶穌就對樹說:“從今以後,永沒有人吃你的果子。”他的門徒也聽見了。



Mk 11:19  每天晚上,耶穌出城去。

Mk 11:20  早晨,他們從那裡經過,看見無花果樹連根都枯乾了。



主既然知道這不是收無花果成熟供食物的季節, 為何在此時找果子吃? 這無花果樹有規有矩地循着主所設立的自然律去生長, 為何反被詛咒?


無花果是在三四月 (逾越節期) 結初出的小果子, 是未熟的, 是不能吃的, 直等到六月, 葉子蒼翠繁茂, 果子也熟了, 才可供人享用. 在此我們看到聖經作者 (博物學家達爾文尚未生生) 對植物學是很有歡察和認識的, 例:

  • “…夏令以前初熟的無花果…” (Isa 28:4)
  • “…無花果樹上春季初熟的果子…” (Hs 9:10)
  • “…好像夏天的果子已被收盡…” (Mc 7:1)


雖然如此, 這棵無花果樹也有一些不尋常的地方, 就是它的葉子: 春天時有葉, 但應是稀少的, 應等至六月才茂盛起來, 但如今尚未到夏天, 它巳長滿葉子了. 雖有點不尋常, 但也不能說它是反自然的現像! 以色列無花果樹很多, 但主選了這棵.   


為甚麽主耶穌---不像我們所認識祂的性情---此時詛咒無花果樹呢? 要回答這個問題, 就要應用 “解經必需要顧及上不文” 的原則了.


當時神的子民只忙於遵守聖殿敬拜禮儀的細節的動作, 而沒有內在敬虔的態度. 他們嘴唇與手脚親近神, 好像葉子一般, 它的美容遠遠被人看見, 但心靈裡面却遠離神, 好像沒有初熟的果子一般. 他們的敬拜是有名 (葉子) 無實 (果子), 或說, 名存實亡. 耶穌在這最後幾天, 便要把真正的敬拜, 就是心靈和誠實 (即在真理內) 的敬拜, 教導門徒. 耶穌詛咒無花果樹的動作其實是一個帶靈訓的比喻. 為甚麼說它是比喻呢? 因為在路加13:6有這檥的話: […於是用比喻說:“一個人有一棵無花果樹栽在葡萄園裡。他來到樹前找果子,卻找不著。”] 不同的是: 路加中的比喻是說出來的, 而馬可中的比喻是演 (act) 出來的. 兩者均是比喻.


生活應用: 今天你我應自省, 看看我們的敬拜與事奉是否有葉無果, 免得日後我們在義人的審判枱前受虧損. 葉和果都是正常植物生長的相貌, 但願我們的葉子不要太多, 但要多結果子, 把榮輝歸神
